Student Success Coach

Hello! My name is Calleigh Kearns and I have been working as a Success Coach at 十大靠谱棋牌登录官网 since March of this year! I graduated from Mount St. Mary’s University with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. I also studied Education and Human Services! I love coaching because I have a passion for helping students throughout their entire collegiate experience. My time as a college student and my career in Higher Education has given me the skills needed to help assist students with problems both big and small! Outside of work, I enjoy going to the beach, dancing, and listening to live music.
